In this image, skill icon is denoted by the number 10

Skill icons (スキルアイコン sukiru aikon) are common abilities that nearly all units have based on their grade. Each icon shows which ability the unit has. There are currently four skill icons, each associated with one or more grades:

  • Sk boost Boost - grade 0 and 1 units
  • Sk intercept Intercept - grade 2 units
  • Sk twindrive Twin Drive!! - grade 3 units and grade 4 normal units
  • Sk tripledrive Triple Drive!!! - grade 4 G units with Stride

Some card abilities can cause units to gain or lose skill icons. As skill icons are not inherently tied to a unit's grade, abilities that alter the grade of a unit will not affect its skill icon and vice versa.

Sk boost Boost

Japanese:「ブースト」(Būsuto)

  • As you choose your attacking unit and your opponent's unit to be attacked for a battle, you can also choose a unit with "Boost" in the back row of the same column as your attacking unit, and [Rest] it to boost the attacking unit. The [Power] of the boosted unit increases by the [Power] of the boosting unit until end of that battle.
  • If your vanguard is in Legion, the [Power] gain is applied to the Legion group's power, but you choose which one of the two vanguards is being boosted (this is important for cards that care about boosting units with specific characteristics, such as Wingal Brave).
  • The [Power] of the boosting unit is continuously added to the boosted unit for the duration of the battle. If the boosting unit's [Power] changes, the new amount of power is immediately also applied to the boosted unit's [Power]. If the boosting unit leaves the field or loses its status as boosting unit, the [Power] gain disappears as well.
  • Currently only grade 0 and grade 1 units have "Boost".
    • The exception to this is Takugal (grade 3) and Eternal Wing (grade 4), both of which are illegal.

Sk intercept Intercept

Japanese:「インターセプト」(Intāseputo)

  • During your opponent's guard step, if your rear-guard with "Intercept" is in the front row, is not being attacked, and another of your units is being attacked, you can move the card with "Intercept" to (GC) as [Rest]. This is considered moving the unit from (RC) to (GC) (as opposed to placing it on (GC)), so "When this unit is placed on (GC)..." abilities do not activate.
  • The unit that has intercepted becomes treated as a guardian. Choose one of your units that is being attacked, and the intercepting unit will guard that unit. The intercepting unit will retire once the battle ends regardless of whether or not the attack hits.
  • It does not matter if your unit with "Intercept" is in [Stand] or [Rest] state to use its "Intercept" ability.
  • Currently only grade 2 and certain grade 1 and 0 units have "Intercept".
  • Certain effects allow your units to intercept from the back row.

Sk twindrive Twin Drive!!

Japanese:「ツインドライブ!!」(Tsuin Doraibu!!)

  • "Twin Drive!!" grants the unit drive+1, allowing you to drive check two cards instead of one during the drive step.
  • Currently only grade 3 units and grade 4 normal units have "Twin Drive!!".

Sk tripledrive Triple Drive!!!

Japanese:「トリプルドライブ!!!」(Toripuru Doraibu!!!)

  • "Triple Drive!!!" grants the unit drive+2, allowing you to drive check three cards instead of one during the drive step.
  • Currently only grade 4 G units with Stride have "Triple Drive!!!". The exception to this is Interdimensional Beast, Metallica Phoenix (V Series), which cannot be normal ridden.
